        This is a beautiful full body image image of young Willie Watson posing holding a wonderful brimmed felt hat, and wearing his Sunday best. Found with these 2 photos, with same handwriting on back. Were they Cousins? Best Friends? Relatives? We do not know. This is a Civil War era CDV ancestor photo with a great image of Willie, and in excellent condition. It is slightly trimmed on edges, usually to fit into tight paper photo albums, as most were. Does not affect his actual image in any way. See the other 2 Warrington Field or Fields family brothers here.

Size: 2.5 x 4 inches
Debra Clifford Ancestorville Genealogy      Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
